2017 ORS 329.185¹
Expansion of Oregon prekindergarten program

When the federal Head Start program provides funding for programs for eligible children at or greater than the 1990-1991 per child level, eligibility for the state funded Oregon prekindergarten program shall be expanded to include programs for children whose family income exceeds the federal Head Start limits or who are in an underserved or unserved age category. After determining the increase in income limits or age level that would make children most in need of state programs eligible for them, the Early Learning Division may direct expenditure of any unexpended or unobligated funds appropriated for the biennium for eligible children to be expended for the additional children considered to be most in need. In the following biennium, the Early Learning Division shall include the cost of any added program for the children most in need in its biennial budget. [Formerly 326.815; 1995 c.660 §19; 2001 c.831 §18; 2013 c.624 §8]
